Discovered that my network interface was set to wake up the computer.
I assumed that this meant "wake up for sleeping" -- I had no idea that
MS would implement that for hibernating as well, which seems to defeat
the purpose of hibernating in the first place.
Another somewhat dubious MS design decision (or is it a bug?).
